This  is  a  digital  copy  of  a  book  that  was  preserved  for  generations  on  library  shelves  before  it  was  carefully  scanned  by  Google  as  part  of  a  project 
to  make  the  world's  books  discoverable  online. 

It  has  survived  long  enough  for  the  copyright  to  expire  and  the  book  to  enter  the  public  domain.  A  public  domain  book  is  one  that  was  never  subject 
to  copyright  or  whose  legal  copyright  term  has  expired.  Whether  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  may  vary  country  to  country.  Public  domain  books 
are  our  gateways  to  the  past,  representing  a  wealth  of  history,  culture  and  knowledge  that's  often  difficult  to  discover. 

Marks,  notations  and  other  marginalia  present  in  the  original  volume  will  appear  in  this  file  -  a  reminder  of  this  book's  long  journey  from  the 
publisher  to  a  library  and  finally  to  you. 

Usage  guidelines 

Google  is  proud  to  partner  with  libraries  to  digitize  public  domain  materials  and  make  them  widely  accessible.  Public  domain  books  belong  to  the 
public  and  we  are  merely  their  custodians.  Nevertheless,  this  work  is  expensive,  so  in  order  to  keep  providing  this  resource,  we  have  taken  steps  to 
prevent  abuse  by  commercial  parties,  including  placing  technical  restrictions  on  automated  querying. 

We  also  ask  that  you: 

+  Make  non-commercial  use  of  the  files  We  designed  Google  Book  Search  for  use  by  individuals,  and  we  request  that  you  use  these  files  for 
personal,  non-commercial  purposes. 

+  Refrain  from  automated  querying  Do  not  send  automated  queries  of  any  sort  to  Google's  system:  If  you  are  conducting  research  on  machine 
translation,  optical  character  recognition  or  other  areas  where  access  to  a  large  amount  of  text  is  helpful,  please  contact  us.  We  encourage  the 
use  of  public  domain  materials  for  these  purposes  and  may  be  able  to  help. 

+  Maintain  attribution  The  Google  "watermark"  you  see  on  each  file  is  essential  for  informing  people  about  this  project  and  helping  them  find 
additional  materials  through  Google  Book  Search.  Please  do  not  remove  it. 

+  Keep  it  legal  Whatever  your  use,  remember  that  you  are  responsible  for  ensuring  that  what  you  are  doing  is  legal.  Do  not  assume  that  just 
because  we  believe  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  for  users  in  the  United  States,  that  the  work  is  also  in  the  public  domain  for  users  in  other 
countries.  Whether  a  book  is  still  in  copyright  varies  from  country  to  country,  and  we  can't  offer  guidance  on  whether  any  specific  use  of 
any  specific  book  is  allowed.  Please  do  not  assume  that  a  book's  appearance  in  Google  Book  Search  means  it  can  be  used  in  any  manner 
anywhere  in  the  world.  Copyright  infringement  liability  can  be  quite  severe.

"  Like  leaves  on  trees,  the  race  of  man  is  found. 
Now  green  in  youth,  now  with'ring  on  the  ground ; 
The  foirwing  spring  another  race  supplies, 
They  rise  successive  and  successive  fall ; 
So  generations  in  their  course  decay, 
So  flourish  these,  when  those  are  passed  away."

♦  Note. — James  Blount  came  into  Chowan  Precinct.  Colony  of  Carolina  in  1669, 
from  Isle  of  Wight  County,  Va.  There  is  evidence  to  show  that  he  was  living  with 
his  family,  in  Ible  of  Wight  County,  Va.,  in  1660.  A  deposition  made  in  a  suit,  in 
which  the  witness  stated,  that  she  lived  in  his  family  in  1660,  in  the  above- 
named  place.  Mrs.  Anne  Blount  his  wife,  was  Anne  Willis,  of  Ipswich.  Massa- 
chusetts— married  first,  Robert  Rascoe,  of  Rownok;  second,  James  Blount;  third, 
Seth  Sothel ;  fourth.  Col.  John  Lear,  of  Nansemond  County,  Virginia.  James 
Blount's  son,  John  Blount,  was  married  to  Elizabeth  Davis,  daughter  of  John

about  six  miles  from  Ekienton,  on  the  Albemarle  Sound.  The  land  was  be- 
qaeathed  to  John  Blount  by  his  father,  James  Blount,  who  patented  the  same  in 
16S4;  it  is,  however,  probable  that  he  occupied  the  land  several  years  before  he 
secured  his  grant.  The  court  records  show  that  James  Blount  was  in  Shaftsbury 
or  Chowan  Precinct  in  1670.  Tradition  has  it  that  he  came  into  Chowan  in  1669.

J.  R.  B.  Hathaway,  Editor  and  Financial  Agent,  Edknton,  N.  C. 

With  this  issue  of  The  North  Carolina  Historical  and 
Gknealogical  Kegister,  we  enter  upon  a  comparatively  new  and 
un  leveloped  field  of  journalism,  in  North  Carolina. 

To  write  history  accurately,  under  tlie  most  favorable  circum- 
etanees  is  a  very  difficult  task,  rendered  much  more  so  when  those 
who  made  it,  have  all  passed  from  the  stage  of  action  to  the  silent 
cities  of  the  dead.  We  may  repair  to  the  cemeteries  and  pressing 
close  to  the  portals  of  the  tomb,  ears  aciitely  tuned  to  catch  the  faintest 
whisper  that  falls  from  human  lips,  ask  the  sleepers  there,  who 
rhiv  are?  Whence  they  came?  What  they  did?  But  alas!  the 
oppressive  silence  is  broken  only  by  the  echo  of  our  words,  wafted 
bavk  by  the  wind,  as  it  sings  through  the  waving  grass  and  rustling 
leaves  a  requiem  for  the  repose  of  those  who  sleep  beneath.  We^ 
must  turn  to  what  has  been  written  to  learn  their  history,  sad  but 
true  it  is,  here  we  find  that  fire  social  convulsions  moth  and  rust, 
the  destructive  agents  of  time,  have  in  many  instances  done  well  their 
work,  and  left  illegible  the  records  onr  ancestors  recorded  with  their 
own  hands,  and  attested  with  their  seals. 

Time  is  a  remorseless  iconoclast.  The  most  sacred  idols  are  ruth- 
lessly broken  in  his  flight,  and  the  tenderest  ties  severed  by  his  stroke. 
He  rules  with  stem  decrees  and  an  iron  hand;  sooner  or  later  all 
things  earthly  must  yield  to  his  sceptre.  The  flower  blooms  but  to 
wither  at  his  touch,  the  sturdy  oak  in  conscious  strength  spreads 
forth  its  branches,  only  to  be  riven  by  his  fiery  bolt,  or  wrecked  by 
the  fierceness  of  his  blast  Man  is  bom  but  to  die,  and  the  epitaph  of 
human  life  may  be  written  in  a  few  brief  words,  first  the  cradle  then 
the  grave,  with  a  short  space  between,  seldom  barren,  often  filled 
with  weeds  and  thorns,  sometimes  laden  with  luscious  fruits  and 
^Iden  grain*  Character  alone  defies  his  keenest  blade,  and  laughs  in 
trinmph  as  the  centuries  march  to  Aeir  inevitable  doom,  for  when

all  the  monuments  of  human  greatness  shall  have  faded  into  oblivion, 
yea,  v^hen  the  granite  hills  and  the  firmly-rooted  mountains  shall  have 
waxed  old,  and  melted  upon  the  funeral  pyre  of  time,  character 
adorned  with  all  that  is  pure  and  good,  will  rise  Phocnixlike  from 
his  ashes  to  grasp  immortal  honors,  that  will  shine  with  increasing 
lustre  while  the  cycles  of  eternity  roll  their  successive  roimds. 

It  will  be  our  province  to  glean  from  the  public  records  of  the 
eastern  counties  of  North  Carolina,  as  well  as  from  those  of  the 
adjoining  counties  of  Virginia,  the  history  of  those,  who  severed  the 
ties  of  friendship,  blood  and  home,  in  the  old  world  to  brave  the 
perils  of  the  deep  and  greater  perils  of  the  wilderness,  to  lay  the 
foundations  of  a  social  fabric,  that  has  become  the  pride  of  every 
North  Carolinian,  and  the  admiration  of  her  sister  States,  in  the 
great  constellation  which  forms  the  American  Union. 

To  the  rude  log  houses  scattered  here  and  there  on  the  banks  of  the 
watercourses  along  the  Atlantic  seaboard,  may  be  traced  not  only 
the  genealogy  of  the  State,  but  that  also  of  the  Kepublic.  In  the 
rebellion  against  unjust  taxation  and  oppressive  laws,  shortly  after 
the  establishment  of  the  Colony  in  North  Carolina,  were  sown  the 
seed  which  fruited  in  1776,  in  the  successful  struggle  for  liberty  and 
independence,  out  of  which  sprang  the  Republic  full  panoplied, 
ready  to  take  her  place  among  the  nations  of  the  earth.  From  a  nar- 
row strip  of  land  on  the  Atlantic  Ocean,  it  has  developed  into  a  vast 
empire,  extending  from  where  perpetual  winter  locks  all  nature  in 
its  icy  embrace  to  where  perennial  spring  infuses  its  genial  breath 
into  bursting  bud  and  opening  flower;  from  where  the  first  rays  of 
morning  light  gild  the  towering  spires  of  our  eastern  cities,  to  where 
the  evening  shadows  fall  upon  the  golden  gates  of  the  far-distant 
west,  whose  varying  climate  and  rich  domain  invite  the  oppressed  of 
every  nation,  to  come  and  dwell,  whe^e  bounteous  harvests  reward  the 
toil  of  the  diligent,  and  labor  finds  a  competency  for  the  "winter 
of  old  age,"  and  above  all,  where  all  the  blessings  of  "Civil  and 
Keligious  Liberty*^  can  be  enjoyed,  abridged  only  in  social  enjoy- 
ments by  laws  designed  to  elevate  to  a  higher  plane  and  destiny  her

life,  silently  cover  with  the  mantle  of  charity  their  faults,  and  speak 
reverently  and  respectfully  of  the  fall  of  the  curtain  in  the  last  act 
of  the  drama  of  life,  remembering  that  the  foundations  of  our  present 
civilization  so  well  and  solidly  laid,  is  and  will  ever  continue  to  be 
the  credit  of  those  who  laid  them,  while  posterity  can  alone  claim  the 
credit  for  the  improvement  and  development  of  the  rich  legacy  they 

The  solid  sturdy  characters  of  those,  who  wrought  well  in  life  will 
be  elevated  to  inspire  with  a  laudable  ambition,  the  youth  of  the 
State,  to  emulate  their  virtues  and  write  upon  history  a  name  that 
will  go  down  to  the  latest  period  of  time.  The  foundation  of  char- 
acter is  laid  in  the  early  years  of  life,  by  careful  pruning  and  by 
<5onstant  and  diligent  cultivation.  The  shattered  dreams  of  youth, 
the  ruined  hopes  of  manhood  and  blasted  fortunes  of  maturer  age,  left 
in  the  wake  of  time  in  his  onward  sweep,  like  gruesome  wrecks,  warn 
of  neglected  opportunities  and  a  failure  to  improve  the  moments  as 
they  swiftly  fly. 

We  place  the  inspiration  before  the  youth  of  the  country,  to  bum 
its  way  deep  into  their  minds  and  hearts  and  shoot  through  every 
nerve  and  fibre  of  their  being,  a  flame  of  intense  and  earnest  desire 
to  achieve  that  success  in  life  commensurate  with  the  opportunities 
and  possibilities  by  which  they  are  surrounded,  and  present  to  the 
world  a  solid  substantial  manhood  reflecting  credit  upon  their  sires 
and  themselves,  and  leaving  a  heritage  to  posterity  more  to  be  desired 
than  great  riches. 

With  these  words  of  introduction,  we  cast  upon  the  tide  of  time 
the  fruits  of  our  labor,  to  be  borne  by  its  current  to  the  homes  of  a 
generous  public,  upon  whose  appreciation  we  confidently  rely  for  a 
patronage  sufficiently  liberal,  to  make  a  success  of  the  work  we  have

Fortitude  is  perhaps  one  of  life's  most  useful  lessons,  certainly 
one  of  the  most  difficult  to  learn.  It  is  taught  so  beautifully  and 
impressively  by  the  ferns  as  they  bloom  in  the  glens  and  dells  of  the 
forest,  their  leaves  are  brightest  when  the  wind  blows  coldest,  and 
where  the  shadows  fall  the  thi)3kest.  Fortitude  is  an  essential  con- 
stituent in  the  development  of  a  vigorous,  sturdy  manhood. 

A  correspondent  is  in  quest  of  a  copy  of  the  MSS.  records  of  John 
Hill's  Family  Bible.     He  lived  and  died  in  Bertie  County,  1762. 
Was  the  father  of  Hon.  Whitmell  Hill.     We  will  thank  any  of  our  - 
readers  for  information  as  to  the  present  ownership  of  the  Bible,  and 
the  person's  address. 

We  are  also  requested  to  advertise  for  the  records  of  the  Southwest 
Parish,  later  known  as  St.  Thomas  Parish,  in  Bertie,  the  records  ante- 
date 1722  and  probably  extend  to  1840  or  1850.  If  they  can  be 
found,  they  will  be  very  valuable  in  writing  up  the  personal  history 
of  Bertie  County,  and  throw  much  light  upon  the  history  of  families 
that  can  be  obtained  from  no  other  source.  We  hope  our  readers 
will  institute  an  enquiry  that  will  lead  to  their  recovery.  A  large 
number  of  our  subscribers  are  directly  interested  in  these  records.

the  time  of  her  marriage  to  Francis  Corbin  of  Edenton,  Deputy  of  Earl  Gran- 
ville. The  old  Cupola  house  on  Broad  street,  in  the  town  Edenton.  built  in 
1758,  was  intended  for.the  occupation  of  Francis  Corbin  and  his  wife  Jean,  but 
he  died  before  its  completion,  and  it  was  sold  and  became  the  property  of  the 
ancestor  of  the  lady  who  now  occupies  it.  An  erroneous  opinion  has  been  current 
relative  to  this  house ;  it  has  been  stated  that  it  was  built  for  Gov.  Charles 
Eden,  who  died  36  years  prior  to  its  construction.

♦  NoTB  —Thomas  Harvey  was  Governor  of  the  Colony.  He  married  first  Mrs. 
Johanna  Jenkins  as  appears  from  the  following  item  taken  from  the  Perquimans 
records :  Thomas  Harvey  son  of  John  Harvey  and  his  wife  living  at  the  Heath, 
in  8nitherfield  Parish,  in  Warwickshire,  England,  and  Joanah  Jenkins,  ye  relict 
of  Hon.  John  Jenkins,  were  married  by  Anthony  Slockem  Apl.  18, 1H82  ;  his  sec- 
ond wife  was  Sarah  Laker  daughter  of  Benjamin  Laker,  issue  (a)  Thomas  Har- 
vey married  Elizabeth  Cole  daughter  of  Col.  James  Cole  of  Perquimans  Precinct,, 
(b)  daughter  Marv  married  Col.  Robert  West  of  Chowan  (Bertie).  Mrs.  Sarah  Har- 
vey married  for  her  second  husband.  Chief  Justice  Christopher  Gale,  issue  (a> 
Miles  Gale,  (b)  daughter  Penelope  Little  wife  of  William  Little,  who  was  also 
Chief  Justice  of  the  Colony,  Elizabeth  married  Henry  Clayton.  Gk)v.  Harvey 
came  into  the  Colony  as  Private  Secretary  of  Gov.  John  Jenkins.  Query :  Was 
he  the  son  or  brother  of  John  Harvey  ?  He  was  his  Executor,  from  the  record 
of  his  marriage  it  would  appear  that  his  father  was  living  at  the  time  of  his 
marriage  in  England. 

f  Note.— Evidently  the  son  of  Thomas  Harvey  and  wife  Elizabeth  Cole,  and 
grandson  of  Gov.  Thomas  Harvey  and  his  wife  Sarah  Laker.

256  North  Carolina  Historical 


Lossing,  in  his  "  Field  Book  of  the  Revolution,"  states  that  the 
first  church  erected  in  North  Carolina  was  located  in  Chowan  County 
in  1705.  While  he  is  in  error  as  to  the  date,  he  is  correct  as  to  its 
location.    (Vol.  — ,  page  — .) 

Tradition  has  placed  the  first  church  on  the  site  of  St.  Paul's 
Church,  in  the  town  of  Edenton,  N.  C,  and  we  regret  that  the  tra- 
dition is  not  verified,  by  the  evidence  taken  from  the  records,  as 
given  in  this  sketch.  The  writer  takes  no  pleasure  in  destroying, 
but  would  rather  confirm  them. 

"  At  the  organization  of  the  first  Vestry  of  St.  Paul's  Parish  at  the 
house  of  Thomas  Gillam,  Dec.  12, 1701,"  in  obedience  to  an  Act  of 
Assembly  made  Nov.  the  12th,  1701,  appointing  a  Vestry  for  this 
Precinct  consisting  of  Hon.  Henderson  Walker,  Col.  Thomas  Pollock, 
William  Duckinfield,  Nicholas  Crisp,  Edward  Smithwick,  John 
Blount,  James  Long,  Nathaniel  Chevin,  William  Banberry,  Col» 
William  Wilkinson,  Capt.  Thomas  Leuten,  Capt.  Thomas  Blount, 
present,  it  being  debated  where  a  church  should  be  built,  Mr.  Ed- 
ward Smithwick  undertakes  to  give  one  acre  of  land  upon  his  old 
plantation,  and  to  give  a  conveyance  for  the  same  to  the  Church 
Wardens  hereafter  appointed  for  the  use  and  service  of  the  precinct, 
to  build  a  church  upon,  and  for  no  other  use,  and  to  acknowledge 
the  same  in  open  court."    (Col.  Rec,  vol.  I,  page  543.) 

"  It  is  appointed  that  Col.  William  Wilkinson  and  Capt.  Thos. 
Leuten  shall  be  Church  Wardens  for  the  following  year,  who  shall 
agree  with  a  workman  for  building  a  Church  25  ft.  long.  Posts  in  the 
ground  and  held  to  the  Collar  Beams,  and  to  find  all  manner  of  Iron 
work,  viz..  Nails  and  Locks,  &c„  with  full  power  to  contract  and 
agree  with  the  said  workman,  as  to  their  direction,  shall  seem  meet 
and  convenient."    (Col.  Rec,  vol.  I,  page  543.) 

"  Ordered,  that  the  Church  Wardens  aforesaid  having  agreed  with 
the  workman  for  the  building  of  a  church  as  aforesaid,  whatsoever 
charge  shall  accrue  for  and  towards  the  building  of  the  aforesaid 
church,  or  any  other  charge  relating  to  the  same  (although  not  here 
particularly  mentioned)  by  the  said  Church  Wardens  be  levied  by 
the  pole  upon  the  Tythables  of  the  Precinct,  the  Church  Wardens 
first  endeavoring  to  raise  the  said  money  by  contribution,  and  in 
case  of  failure  to  raise  it  by  the  pole  as  aforesaid,  to  agree  with  a  Col- 
lector or  Collectors  to  receive  the  same  with  power  to  destrain  in  case 
of  Refusal."    (Col.  Records,  vol.  I,  pages  543  and  544.) 

The  next  evidence  we  introduce  is  a  deed  from  "Edward  Smith- 
wick to  Thomas  Luten  and  William  Wilkinson,  Church  Wardens 
of  ye  Precinct  of  Chowan,  in   North  Carolina."    "  Seventy  yards

the  8ai<i  land  to  be  on  the  road  or  the  highway  from  Thomas  6yl-

ables  in  the  Precinct  being  taken  is  found  to  be  283."  (Col.  Rec, 
vol.  I,  pages  558-9.) 

**  Ordered,  that  the  vestry  meet  to-morrow  morning  to  view  the 

'Oct.  ye  14th,  1702.  The  vestry  being  met  and  having  viewed

the  ceiling  of  the  Chappel,  by  reason  of  the  Boards  being  defaced." 
(Col.  Rec,  vol.  I,  page  576 ) 

Ordered,  that  Mr.  Edward  Smithwick  and  Mr.  Nicholas  Crisp,  on 
behalf  of  the  vestry,  do  choose  one  indifferent  man  that  is  skilled  in 
building,  and  Mr.  John  Porter  shall  choose  another,  who  shall  meet 
at  the  Chanel  the  second  Saturday  in  November  to  give  their  "judg- 
ment whether  the  boards  be  fit  for  ceiling  such  a  house,  and  if  these 
two  persons  chosen  as  aforesaid  cannot  agree  in  their  opinions,  then 
they  shall  choose  an  umpire,  and  what  opinion  he  the  said  umpire 
shall  give  shall  be  a  full  and  final  determination  of  the  matter  about 
the  ceiling  and  boards,  and  the  agreement  between  the  Church  War- 
dens and  Mr.  John  Porter  shall  be  thence."  (Col.  Reic,  vol.  I,  pages 
558-9  and  560)

"Ordered,  that  the  Church  Wardens  do  speedily  agree  with  a

"  Also  debated  the  Payment  of  John  Dicks  for  work  about  the

before  the  work  be  done.  He  alledging  that  he  could  not  finish  it  for

"  Ordered,  that  John  Dicks  be  paid  one  pound,  seventeen  shillings,

olas Crisp,  Jno.  Blount,  Esq.,  Mr.  Edward  Smithwick,  Mr.  Wm.  Ban-

**  Ordered,  that  Phillis  Dicks,  widow  of  John  Dicks,  be  paid  by  the 
publick  the  sum  of  two  pounds,  besides  what  he  hath  been  allowed 
and  paid  by  the  public  for  his  work  on  the  Chapel.    (Idem,  p.  679.) 

"At  a  Vestry  met  at  the  Chapel  on  Tuesday,  May  11,  1708.  Pres- 
ent, Wm.  Duckinfield,  Esq.,  Edward  Moseley,  Esq.,  Mr.  Edward 
Smithwick.  Capt.  Thos.  Luten,  Mr.  Nicholas  Crisp,  Mr.  Wm.  Ban- 
bury,  Mr.  Thomas  Garrett,  John  Ardern,  Esq.,  Mr.  John  Blount." 

"  It  having  this  day  been  debated  for  the  better  encouragement  of 
a  minister  (for  this  precinct  only)  which  is  the  most  proper  place  to 
purchase  for  a  Glebe,  it's  unanimously  agreed  upon  that  the  planta- 
tion now  belonging  to  Mr.  Frederick  Jones,  whereon  the  church  now 
stands,  is  the  fittest  place  can  be  thought  on  for  that  use:  the  tract  of 
land  in  quantity  containing  five  hundred  acres. 

"  It  is  therefore  the  humble  Request  of  the  Vestry  that  Edward 
Mosoley,  Esq.,  (having  now  business  into  Virginia)  will  please  to 
treat  with  Mr.  Frederick  Jones  concerning  the  purchase  of  the  said 
land  and  agree  with  him  for  the  same,  provided  he  exceed  not  an 
hundred  pounds  in  country  commodities. 


*' Ordered,  that  the  Church  Wardens  endeavor  to  have  the  pulpit 
finished  with  all  possible  speed,  as  likewise  the  Desk,  and  what  other 
things  belong  to  it,  as  likewise  to  have  the  Church  floor  laid  with 
Brick,  but  upon  further  debate  of  the  matter  it's  agreed  upon  that 
the  floor  shall  be  laid  with  plank  as  being  the  cheapest  and  most 
expeditious  way  of  having  it  done."   (Col.  Rec.,  vol.  1,  pages  680-1.) 

The  italics,  "whereon  the  church  now  stands,"  in  the  above  quo- 
tation are  ours;  th^y  are  not  in  the  original  as  italics,  but  written 
as  the  balance  of  the  paragraph. 

From  the  above  evidence  taken  from  the  records,  we  have  the 
<}hurch  commenced  upon  the  land  of  Edward  Smith  wick  in  1702  and 
received  by  the  Vestry  Dec.  15, 1702;  it  was,  however,  not  comple- 
ted as  late  as  1708,  when  it  still  required  a  floor,  at  which  time  we 
find  the  plantation  upon  which  it  was  built  had  changed  from  the 
possession  of  Edward  Smithwick  to  that  of  Fred'k  Jones,  who  seems 
from  the  record  to  have  been  in  Virginia  at  the  time ;  he  had  prob- 
ably just  purchased  it,  and  afterwards  removed  to  it.  In  order  to  lo- 
-cate  the  exact  tract  of  land  "  whereon  the  Church  now  stands"  in 
1708,  we  propose  to  introduce  the  original  grant  to  Edward  Smith- 
wick and  the  deeds  on  record  in  the  office  of  the  Register  of  Deeds 
for  Chowan  County,  and  trace  the  title  to  the  present  date.  Grant 
to  Edward  Smithwich  (recorded  in  B6ok  I,  page  308,  Secretary  of 
State's  Office,  Raleigh,  N.  C.)  reads  as  follows: 

380  acres  lying  on  southeast  side  of  Mattacomack  Creek,  '*  Begin- 
ning at  a  red  oak  at  the  mouth  of  said  creek,  then  down  the  bay  of 
the  said  creek  various  courses  to  a  red  oak,  an  old  marked  corner 
tree;  then  east  6J°  north  300  poles  to  a  white  oak;  then  north  3^ 
^ast  147  poles  to  an  old  marked  hickory  by  the  creek  side ;  then  down* 
the  creek  by  various  courses  to  first  station.    Jany.  1, 1694." 

Smithwick's  deed  calls  for  the  acre  of  land  (given,  the  Church 
Wardens  upon  which  to  "arect  a  church")  to  be  upon  the  road  lead- 
ing from  Thomas  Gilliam's  house  in  the  woods,  and  here  follows  the 
grant  made  to  Thos.  Gilliam  Apl.  16, 1697,  (recorded  in  Book  I,  page 
76,  Office  of  the  Secretary  of  State,  Raleigh,  N.  C.)  for  560  acres  land : 

*' Beginning  at  a  red  oak  standing  by  the  River,  then  N.84^  E.  300 
poles  to  a  Gum,  S.  36°  E,  170  poles  to  a  white  oak,  south  45°  W.  320 
poles  to  red  oak  standing  on  the  Bank  of  the  River,  then  up  the 
River  by  various  courses  to  first  station." 

This  tract  of  land  lies  back  of  the  Smithwick  grant,  and  was  sold 
by  Thos.  Gilliam  to  Edward  Smithwick  in  1702,  and  by  Smithwick 
iK)  Jeremiah  Vail,  and  corresponds  to  what  is  now  called  Cherry's 
Point,  formerly  Collins'  Point.  The  deed  from  Thomas  Gilliam  to 
Edward  Smithwick  cannot  be  found  on  the  records,  but  the  follow- 
ing deed  from  Edward  Smithwick  and  wife  Sarah  to  Jeremiah  Vail, 
dated  July  2, 1709,  (recorded  in  Book  B,  No.  1,  page  367,)  conveys 
^*  a  tract  of  land  containing  560  acres,  which  was  formerly  granted 
by  the  Lords  Proprietors  to  Thomas  Gilliam  as  by  ye  Patent  dated 
Apl.  17, 1697."    Then  follows  the  same  description  as  found  in  Grant 

260  North  Carolina  Historical 

to  Thomas  Gilliam  above.  The  last  call  speaks  of  the  line  dividing 
it  from  land  of  Edward  Moseley. 

The  deed  from  Edward  Smithwick  to  Frederick  Jones  is  also  not 
to  be  found  on  the  records,  but  a  deed  from  Thos.  Jones  and  Hard- 
ing Jones  of  New  Hanover  Co.,  N.  C,  to  John  Rieussett,  dated  Julye 
11, 1757,  (recorded  in  Book  H,  No.  1,  page  274,)  conveys  **  388  acres 
land  more  or  less  (except  one-eighth  part  of  an  acre  of  the  aforesaid 
land,  including  in  the  middle  or  centre  thereof  tlie  burying  place  or 
graves  of  the  Ancestors  or  Family  of  the  said  Thomas  and  Harding 
Jones)  situated,  lying  and  being  near  Edenton,  in  Chowan  County,  on 
the  opposite  side  of  Queen  Ann's  formerly  called  Mattacomack  Creek^ 
beginning  at  a  Red  Oak  at  the  mouth  of  the  said  creek,  running  thence 
down  the  bay  of  said  creek  by  various  courses  of  the  said  bay  to  a 
red  oak,  an  old  marked  corner  tree;  thence  E.  6J°  N.  300  poles  to  a 
white  oak;  thence  N.  3J°  E.  147  poles  to  a  marked  hickory  by  the 
said  creek  side;  thence  bounded  down  by  the  various  courses  of  the 
said  creek  to  the  first  station;  and  also  163  acres  more  or  less  situ- 
ated, lying  and  being  on  the  south  side  of  the  SE  branch  of  Queen 
Ann's  formerly  called  Mattacomack  Creek  in  Chowan  County,  and 
adjoining  the  388  acres  of  land  above  mentioned,  Beginning  Ht  a 
Red  Oak  on  the  northeast  side  of  the  said  branch,  the  corner  tree  of 
the  land  formerly  belonging  to  one  Windley  and  lately  to  Capt. 
Nicholas  Crisp,  dec'd,  running  thence  thro'  the  said  branch  SW  40 
poles  to  a  white  oak ;  thence  south  147  poles  in  the  line  that  divides 
this  from  the  land  first  above  mentioned  to  a  white  oak ;  thence 
S  30°  E  170  poles;  thence  ENE  130  poles  to  the  line  of  the  aforesaid 
Nicholas  Crisp,  formerly  called  Windley's  line;  thence  bounded 
'down  by  the  said  line  NW  276  poles  to  the  first  station.  Which  said 
lands  were  granted  by  Patent  from  the  late  Lords  Proprietors  of 
Carolina,  to  Edward  Smithwick,  dated  in  the  year  1694,  and  were 
sold  and  conveyed  by  the  said  Smithwick  to  Frederick  Jones,  father 
of  the  said  Thomas  and  grandfather  of  the  said  Harding  Jones,  and 
by  the  last  Will  and  Testament  of  the  said  Fred'k  Jones,  bearing

of  c;howan  County,  contains  the  following  bequest:  "  My  Hayes  farm 
with  mills  attached.  I  give  to  wife  Caroline  M.  Wood  during  her  life- 
time, with  all  the  Furniture,  Library,  Riding  Vehicles,  &c.,  stock, 
farming  implements,  &c.,  upon  tbe  irame,  and  at  her  death  to  my  son 
John  Wood,  his  heirs  and  assigns,  and  desire  them  to  keep  and  pre- 
serve the  farm  in  good  order,  and  keep  it  in  my  family  as  long  as 
possible,  in  respect  to  the  memory  of  him  who  gave  it  to  me." 

From  a  careful  review  of  the  facts  produced  from  the  records  of 
both  Church  and  State  in  this  article,  the  conclusion  is  inevitable, 
that  the  first  church  built  in  North  Carolina  was  located  on  the  380 
acre  grant  of  Edward  Smithwick,  dated  in  1694,  the  title  to  which 
has  ^n  traced  down  to  the  present,  when  it  appears  as  a  part  of  the 
Hayes  Farm  now  owned  by  Jno.  G.  Wood,  Esq.  The  exact  spot 
where  it  stood  on  this  tract  of  land  is  not  known,  and  will  probably 
never  be  ascertained  A  presumption,  however,  arises  from  the  na- 
ture of  the  Grant  to  Smithwick,  and  from  the  fact  that  in  1702  the 
bulk  of  the  population  of  this  part  of  Chowan  Precinct  lived  on  the 
road  leading  from  the  Yoppim  road  to  Sandy  Point  or  contiguous  to 
it,  that  tbe  church  was  built  upon  or  near  the  said  road  leading  to 
Sandy  Point.  The  Smithwick  Grant  was  nearly  due  east  from  the 
Bay  300  poles,  not  quite  one  mile,  which  is  about  the  distance  from 
the  bay  to  said  road.  Henderson  Walker,  Nicholas  Crisp,  Edward 
Smithwick,  John  Blount,  William  Banbury,  CoL  Wm.  Wilkinson 
and  Thomas  Leuten,  seven  of  the  eight  members  of  the  Ist  Vestry 
who  lived  on  this  side  of  the  Albemarle  Sound  and  Chowan  River 
lived  on  the  aforesaid  road,  or  contiguous  to  it.  Henderson  Walker 
lived  in  1702  at  Skinner's  Point,  Nicholas  Crisp  lived  on  land  ad- 
joining Smithwiok's,  Edward  Smithwick  resided  near  the  church  on

the  same  tract  on  which  it  was  built,  John  Blount  owned  Mulberry 
Hill,  William  Banbury  was  living  at  Atholl,  later  known  as  Benbury 
Hall,  Col.  Wm.  Wilkinson  resided  at  Sandy  Point,  and  Thomas 
Leuten  owned  land  adjoining  Wm.  Wilkinson.  The  other  vestry- 
man, Nath'l  Chevin,  in  all  probability  lived  on  his  one  hundred 
acre  farm  which  now  constitutes  a  part  of  the  town  of  Edenton 
Thomas  Pollock  resided  in  what  is  now  Bertie  County,  as  did  Wil- 
liam Duckinfield  at  Salmon  Creek,  while  James  Long  and  Thomas 
Blount  were  residents  of  the  South  Shore,  known  as  Tyrrell  and 
Washington  Counties  at  present. 

The  land  on  which  the  town  of  Edenton  was  built  was  owned  by 
three  or  four  persons,  and  there  were  no  settlements  on  the  north  or 
east  immediately  adjoining  its  present  boundaries,  as  early  as  1702^ 
there  were  two  or  three  families  on  the  west  across  Filbyrd's  Creek, 
(named  for  Nicholas  Filbyrd). 

"  At  a  meeting  of  the  Vestry  holden  at  the  Chapel  on  Sunday  the 
25th  July,  1708.  Present,  Edward  Moseley,  Esq.,  William  Duckin- 
field, Esq.,  Capt.  Thomas  Luton,  Mr.  Nicholas  Crisp,  Mr.  Edward 
Smithwick,  Mr.  William  Banbury,  Mr.  William  Charlton,  John  Ar- 
dern,  Esq. 

"  Whereas,  it  had  been  taken  into  our  mature  consideration,  the 
many  and  great  inconveniences  which  attend  the  Chappell  which  is 
already  built,  both  in  respect  of  its  ill  situation,  smallness  and  rough 
and  unfit  workmanship, 

"  We  therefore  to  show  our  true  zeal  for  the  Glory  of  God  and 
propagating  so  good  a  work,  do  unanimously  agree  that  a  church  of 
forty  feet  long,  and  twenty-four  wide,  fourteen  feet  from  tenent  to 
tenent  for  hight,  the  remaining  part  of  the  work  to  be  proportiona- 
ble: the  roof  to  be  first  plankt,  and  then  shingled  with  good  cypress 
shingles,  and  the  whole  to  be  ceiled  with  plank,  and  floored  with 
plank,  for  the  speedy  accomplishment  of  which  said  work  it's  the 
Earnest  Request  of  the  present  members  of  the  Vestry  that  Edward 
Moseley,  Esq.,  and  Capt.  Thomas  Leuten  will  undertake  to  see  the 
same  performed,  they  living  convenient,  and  to  agree  with  Work- 
men at  as  easy  Rates  as  may  be.  It  being  well  and  substantially 
performed."    (Col.  Rec,  vol.  I,  page  684.) 

At  a  vestry  held  at. the  Chapell  on  Thursday,  27th,  Feby.  1708-9, 
we  find  only  the  following  items  referring  to  the  church  :  "  Ordered, 
that  the  Collector  of  Precinct  advance  the  sum  of  twelve  pounds  to- 
wards the  beautifying  of  the  Chappell  over  and  above  the  charge 
of  the  collection.  Ordered,  that  the  way  and  method  of  beautifying 
.  the  Church  be  left  to  the  discretion  of  the  Church  Wardens  for  the 
year  ensuing,  viz.,  enlarging,  repairing^  &c"    (Italics  ours.) 

An  item  in  the  account  of  the  Church  Wardens  presented  at  this 
meeting  reads  as  follows:  "  By  600  feet  of  Inch  board  by  Mr.  Smith- 
wick towards  laying  the  fioor,  2£.  10s.  Od."  (Col.  Rec,  vol.  I,  page 

From  the  above  excerpts  of  records,  it  appears  that  the  plank  for

the  floor  in  the  church  had  been  purchased,  and  that  the  proposi- 
tion to  build  another  church,  gave  place  to  "beautifying  the  church 
by  enlarging,  repairing,  Ac,"  presumptively  the  first  building 
erected.  If  another  church  was  built  prior  to  1730  in  a  different  lo- 
cality, after  diligent  search  no  deed  has  been  found  for  the  land  on 
which  it  was  erected.  The  records  of  deeds  are  silent  on  this  point 
This  forces  us  to  the  conclusion  that  the  first  church  may  have  been 
enlarged  and  repaired.  There  was  no  incorporated  town  in  the  Pre- 
cinct, except  Bath,  until  1712,  at  which  time  the  Legislature  passed 
an  Act  "  to  build  a  Court  House  and  House  to  hold  the  Assembly 
in,  and  for  such  persons  as  were  minded  to  do  so  to  build  in  the  forks 
of  Queen  Ann's  Creek,  the  place  taking  the  name  of  **  Queen  Ann's 
Town,"  and  retaining  it  until  1722,  when  an  Act  was  passed  to  "in- 
corporate the  Town  of  Edenton,"  in  honor  of  Grov.  Charles  Eden. 
The  first  lot  sold  at  "Queen  Ann's  Town,"  was  conveyed  by  Nath'l 
Chevin  to  Charles  Foster,  Sept.  1, 1715,  probably  one-half  acre,  known 
as  Lot  A,  taken  out  of  his  one  hundred  acre  farm  which  be  owned 
on  Queen  Anne's  Creek.  Later  Nath'l  Chevin  and  Thomas  Peter- 
son conveyed  to  Edward  Moseley  Lots  1  and  2  at  Queen  Anne's  Town. 
There  is  no  evidence  among  the  records  thaC  there  was  any  church 
in  Queen  Anne's  Town  or  Edenton,  or  other  place  of  Public  Wor- 
ship, up  to  Mch.  31, 1729,  but  there  is  evidence  to  show  there  was 
none  about  that  date. 

Col.  Wm.  Byrd  of  the  surveying  party  on  the  part  of  Virginia  to  run 
the  "  Boundary  Line"  between  Virginia  and  North  Carolina  visited 
Edenton  March  29,  1729,  and  in  his  Manuscripts,  vol.  I,  page  59, 
states:  "I  believe  this  is  the  only  Metropolis  in  the  Christian  or 
Mohamatan  World,  where  there  is  neither  Church,  Chapel,  Mosque, 
Synagogue  or  other  Place  of  Publick  Worship  of  any  Sect  or  Re- 
ligion." Again,  in  the  same  volume,  page  63:  "Our  Chaplain  re- 
turned to  us  in  the  evening  fronfi  Edenton  in  company  with  the 
Carolina  Commissioners.  He  bad  preaeht  there  in  the  Court  House 
for  the  want  of  a  ^consecrated  place,  and  made  no  less  than  19  of 
Father  Hennepin's  Christians." 

The  following  extracts  from  the  records  will,  however,  clearly 
show  that  the  first  church  was  in  all  probability  not  enlarged,  nor 
was  there  a  new  and  larger  one  built  on  its  site  or  elsewhere  prior 
to  1729.  Of  course  I  do  not  refer  to  the  church  that  was  constructed 
in  that  part  of  Chowan  Precinct  now  within  the  lines  of  Gales 
County,  of  which  we  will  find  a  record  later  on,  to- wit,  "Sarum 

Rev.  John  Urmston  was  the  Missionary  in  charge  of  the  work  in 
Chowan  and  other  Precincts.  In  a  letter  from  him,  dated  July  7, 1711, 
making  a  report  of  his  work,  we  find  the  following  language:  "  We 
had  neither  Church  nor  Chapel  in  3  of  the  Precincts,  and  those  two  we 
have  in  Chowan  and  Perquimans  were  never  finished — ready  to 
drop  down ;  that  in  th^  former  Precinct  hath  neither  floor  nor  seats, 
only  a  few  loose  benches  upon  the  sand,  the  key  being  lost  the  door

has  stood  open  ever  since  I  came  into  the  country.  All  the  Hoggs 
and  Cattle  flee  thither  for  shelter  in  the  summer  and  warmth  in  the 
, Winter ;  they  first  dig  holes  and  bury  themselves,  then  with  the  rest 
make  it  a  loathsome  place,"  &c.    (Col.  Rec,  vol.  I,  pages  769-70 ) 

The  expression  in  the  above  extract,  "  only  a  few  loose  benches 
on  the  sand,"  seems  to  indicate  that  the  church  was  located  on  the 
♦shore  of  the  bay,  as  sand  can  only  be  found  upon  the  Smith  wick 
tract  at  or  near  the  water.  However,  as  this  may  be,  it  could  have 
been  hauled  from  the  shore  to  the  church  and  placed  within  it  to 
make  the  dirt  floor  more  comfortable.  Rev.  Mr.  Adams  had  left 
Chowan  and  goiie  to  Coratuck  in  1709,  at  which  time  he  was  suc- 
ceeded by  Rev.  John  Urmstor. 

Mr.  Adams  writes  to  the  Secretary,  his  letter  being  dated  in  Lron- 
dor»  May  13,  1709,  as  follows,  speaking  of  the  Precincts:  "  Chowan 
is  the  westernmost,  the  largest  and  thinnest  settled.  They  built  a 
Church  some  years  "ago,  but  it  is  small,  very  sorrily  put  together, 
and  is  ill  looked  after;  and  therefore  I  prevailed  with  them  to  build 
another,  which  they  went  about  when  I  came  away.  The  plan  of  it 
I  brought  over,  and  was  desired  to  procure  as  much  glass  as  will  be 
necessary  for  the  windows,  which  by  computation  will  amount  to 
Bl5  feet."    (Col.  R-  c,  vol.  I,  pages  711-12 ) 

At  a  meeting  of  the  vestry  held  the  1st  June,  1711-12.  "  Ordered, 
that  Mr.  John  Urmston  be  allowed  for  officiating  in  this  precinct, 
the  year  following  commencing  from  the  25th  Dtc.  last  past,  at  the 
several  times  and  places  hereafter  mentioned,  seventy  pounds  to  be 
levied  and  paid  as  the  Act  of  Assembly  for  establishing  a  Church 
and  making  provision  for  Ministers  doth  appoint  and  direct,  dated 
Mch.  ye  10,  1710-11,  viz.,  One  Sunday  on  the  south  shore,  then  the 
two  next  on  the  western  shore  alternately."  (Col.  Rec,  vol.  I,  pages 

Letter  from  Rev.  John  Urmston  to  John  Chamberlain,  dated  on 
Board  the  Bayly,  James  River,  May  30,  1712:  "  I  intend  to  come  for 
England  God  willing  pr.  the  next  fleet.  The  country  owes  me  100£ 
already,  and  the  longer  I  stay  the  worse  it  will  be."  (Idem,  page  851,) 

In  a  letter  from  Rev.  Giles  Rainford  to  John  Chamberlain,  dated 
Chowan  in  North  Carolina,  July  2*,  1712,  the  following  language 
appears:  "June  the  5th  I  arrived  at  the  Governor's,  where  I  was 
most  kindly  received  bv  him,  as  afterwards  by  Col.  Pollock  and  Mr. 
Duckinfield.  *  *  *  *  Whit  Sunday  *  *  *  *  several  of  the  people 
came  that  day  to  Public  Service,  hut  perfect  strangers  to  the  Method 
of  Worship  of  our  Church.  Mr.  Urmston  and  I  by  a  mutual  agree- 
ment, with  the  approbation  of  the  Governor,  are  to  manage  after 
this  manner.  He  proposes  to  supply  the  North  Shore  at  the  lower 
end  of  Chowan,  together  with  all  Paspetanck,  provided  I  take  care 
of  the  West  Shore  (where  there  is  no  church).     But  since  the  whole

Town  wbere  I  preacbed  at  June  5tb,  bad  vast  crowds  come  to  bear 
me,  but  I  observed  they  exprest  very  little  or  rather  no  devotion  in 
time  of  Divine  Service.  June  22d  I  preacbed  at  one  Mr.  Garratt's, 
the  upper  end  of  Chowan,  but  had  such  numbers  that  I  was  obliged 
to  go  under  a  large  Mulberry  Tree.  *  *  *  i  had  several  confer- 
ences with  one  Thomas  Hoyle,  King  of  tbe  Chowan  IiMlians,  who 
seem  very  inclinable  to  embrace  Christianity  and  proposes  to  send 
his  son  to  School  to  Sarum  to  have  bim  taught  to  read  and  write  by 
way  of  foundation  in  order  to  a  further  proficiency  for  the  recep- 
tion of  Christianity.  I  readily  offered  my  service  to  instruct  him 
myself,  and  having  tbe  opportunity  of  sendiug  him  to  Mr.  Garrett's, 
where  I  lodge,  being  but  three  miles  distance  from  this  Town.  I 
found  be  had  some  notions  of  Noah's  flood,  which  he  came  to  the 
knowledge  of  and  exprest  himself  after  this  manner:  My  father  told 
me  I  tell  my  son.  There's  one  Mr.  Mashburn  who  keeps  a  school  at 
*  Sarum  on  the  fronteers  of  Virginia  between  the  two  Governments 
and  neighboring  upon  2  Indian  Towns."    (Col.  Rec,  Vol.  I,  858-9.) 

Letter  of  John  Urmstom  to  the  Secretary,  dated  Nov.  6,  1712, 
says:  "  Mr.  Rainsford  has  proved  another  Alexander.  His  coming  in 
has  been  a  great  detriment  to  me,  and  no  service  to  the  Country.  I 
wish  be  may  stay  in  it  as  long  as  I've  done,  but  very  much  doubt  it; 
never  any  one  could  do  it,  and  had  I  been  able  should  have  long 
ago  taken  me  to  another  place."    (Col.  Rec,  Vol.  I,  page  888.) 

Now,  in  all  these  letters  there  has  not  been  one  word  written  with 
reference  to  tbe  Church  or  Chapel,  nor  have  we  found  in  the  records 
of  the  Vestry  Meeting  for  past  two  years  any  allusion  to  building  or 
repairing.  Rev.  John  Urmstom  speaks  of  the  Chapel  being  "ready 
to  drop  down,  and  a  resting'  place  for  Hoggs  and  Cattle;  they  flee 
thither  for  shelter  in  the  Summer  and  Warmth  in  Winter."  Mr. 
Rainsford's  letter  to  the  Secretary,  dated  Chowan,  N.  Carolina,  17 
Feby.,  1712-13:  "Mr.  Urmatom  has  bought  a  plantation  on  the  con- 
fines of  Virginia."    (Idem,  Vol.  II,  page  17.) 

Rev.  John  Urmstom  to  General  Nicbelson,  North  Carolina,  July 
1st,  1713-4:  "This  is  now  the  time  of  payment,  whilst  people  have  it. 

*  Sarum  was  in  all  probability  located  at  or  near  the  ''Ballard  place,"  about  8 
miles  Northwest  of  Gatesville  at  the  head  of  "Sarum  Creek."  It  was  three 
miles  from  Thos.  Garrett's  on  Catharine  Creek  to  Thos.  Hoyle's  Indian  Town, 
located  on  their  grant  for  11,000  acres  of  land  lying  between  Catharine  Creek 
and  Bennett's  Creek,  making  it  about  5  or  6  miles  distant  from  the  present  Town 
of  Gatesville,  N.  C.  The  other  Indian  Town  referred  to  as  being  convenient  to 
the  School  at  Sarum  was  most  probably  that  of  the  Meherrin  Indians  at  or  near 
the  mouth  of  the  Meherrin  River.  Sarum  being  located  at  the  head  of  Sarum 
Creek  was  about  equidistant  between  the  two  towns.  On  a  recent  visit  to  Gates- 
ville, in  conversation  with  an  old  gentleman  83  years  old.  he  stated,  that  when 
a  boy  there  were  evidences  at  or  near  the  Ballard  place  of  a  very  old  settlement.  ^

John  Urmstone's  letter  to  the  Secretary.  Extract:  "  North  Caro- 
lina, Nov.  13,  1716.  There  was  a  Vestry  appointed  for  Chowan 
where  I  have  resided  for  six  years  and  a  half,  several  essays  have 
been  made  towards  a  meeting,  but  there  were  a  majority,  at  least 
we  had  eight,  whereof  two  refused  to  qualify  themselves  as  the  Act 
which  I  sent  the  Society  directs,  and  nowe  they  pretend  without  a 
new  Act  there  is  no  Vestry,  all  to  avoid  paying  me,  hoping  by  that 
means  to  drive  me  out  of  the  Country."  (Idem,  vol.  I,  page  248.)

times  to  the  church  in  the  neighborhood  {i.  e,  that  is  4  miles  dis- 
tance), and  met  not  a  congregation  ;  so  indifferent  are  our  Gentry 
in  their  Religion  they  had  rather  never  come  to  church  than  be 
obliged  to  pay  me  anything;  they  can  not  endure  the  thought  of 
it."  (Col.  Rec,  vol.  II,  page  279). 

•  John  Urmstone  to  the  Secretary.  Extract:  North  Carolina,  June 
22, 1717.  "  It  was  agreed  that  we  should  hold  a  Vestry  every  first 
Sunday  in  the  month,  but  we  have  never  since  the  first  nor  I  believe 
ever  shall ;  the  first  Sunday  in  the  month  we  had  one  Church  War- 
den and  three  Vestrymen."  (Idem,  page  288.) 

In  his  letter  dated  Oct  23, 1717,  he  speaks  of  Rev.  Mr.  Taylor  ar- 
riving here  about  a  month  ago  (page  294),  after  which  time  Mr. 
Urmston  commenced  his  labors  in  the  lower  precincts. 

We  have  given  the  statements  of  Rev.  John  Urmston,  fully  aware 
that  his  reputation  in  the  Colony  to  say  the  least  was  very  unsavory; 

*  Rev.  John  Urmston  owned  400  acres  of  land  on  tlie  Albemarle  Sound,  either 
covering  a  part  of  Atholl  water  front,  or  on  the  tract  immediately  west  of  it. 
He  gave  Edward  Moseley  a  power  of  attorney  in  1720,  shortly  after  he  left  the 
Precinct,  to  dispose  of  it.  This  paper  is  indexed,  but  on  referring  to  the  book 
and  page,  we  fail  to  find  it  recordea. 


his  statements  when  corroborated  by  other  evidence  are  worthy  of 
credence  and  others  relating  to  minor  details,  where  there  could  be 
no  motive  or  interest  to  prevaricate,  must  likewise  be  received.  We 
nevertheless  leave  the  reader  to  attach  that  weight  to  his  evidence 
the  facts  and  circumstances  may  justify.  The  trend  of  all  the  record 
evidence  is  to  the  Edward  Smitbwick  grant  of  380  acres,  as  being 
the  place  upon  which  was  erected  the  first  church  in  N.  Carolina. 
We  can  not  see  how  a  doubt  of  this  fact  can  linger  in  the  mind  of 
any  person,  after  a  careful  and  thoughtful  investigation  of  the  evi- 
dence collected  in  this  sketch.  A  second  church  (while  the  records 
are  not  in  accord  with  the  thought),  may  have  been  commenced^ 
but  we  can  find  nothing  to  indicate  that  it  was  ever  completed  or 

St.  Paul's  Church  in  Edenton,  N.  C,  was  commenced  after  1729^ 
but  it  is  not  now  our  purpose  to  give  its  history.  We  may  do  so  at 
a  later  date.

There  is  no  date  to  this  paper,  found  among  the  Court  records  of 
Chowan  County  at  Edenton,  N.  C,  but  it  was  evidently  executed 
prior  to  1716,  as  John  Byrd,  one  of  the  signers,  was  dead  at  that 
time.  This  oath  was  required  of  all  oflBcers  upon  their  qualifi- 
cation to  oflBce.  It  remained  a  law  until  the  Convention  of  1835, 
when,  through  the  eflforts  and  influence  of  Hon.  William  Gaston,  it 
was  abrogated.  There  are  three  words  in  the  oath  that  cannot  be

born  1716  (son  of  John  Blount  and  Elizabeth  Davis,  daughter  of  John  and  Mary 
Davis  and  granddaughter  of  John  Burton,  of  Henrico  Co.,  Va).  John  Blount, 
born  1669.  was  the  son  of  Jas.  Blount  and  wife,  Ann  ;  Jas.  Blount  died  in  1685-6. 
(4)  Elizabeth  Durant,  born  March  12,  1720,  married  Joseph  Reed,  brother  of 
Christian,  both  sons  of  Gov.  Wra.  Reed.  (5)  Geo.  Durant,  Wn  Aug.  23d,  1728, 
was  living  in  1730,  at  the  time  of  his  father's  death.  As  no  record  of  him  ap- 
pears in  the  division  of  his  father's  estate,  it  is  presumed  he  died  in  his  minority. 
Sarah  Durant,  who  married  Joseph  Blount  I,  died  in  1751,  leaving  only  one 
child,  Sarah  Blount,  who  married  William  Littlejohn.  Joseph  Blount  I  mar-

one  son,  William  Reed.  (William  Reed  was  the  brother  of  Christian  and  Joseph 
mentioned  in  this  note).    McRora  Scarborough's  will  executed  January  21.  1751, 

Srobated  February  18,  1752,  mentions  the  following  persons :  Wife  Elizabeth,

Thomas  Blount  Littlejohn,  eldest  son  of  William  Littlejohn  and 
Sarah  Blount,  born  at  Edenton,  N.  C,  Dec.  9,  1773,  but  went  to 
Granville  Co.,  N.  C,  when  a  youug  man,  where  he  married  Eliza- 
beth Mutter  (dau.  of  Thomas  Mutter,  a  Scotchman,  and  Elizabeth 
Moore)  on  Thursday  evening,  Dec.  6, 1798,  Rev.  Henry  Pattillo  per- 
forming the  ceremony.  Thomas  Mutter  and  his  wife  Elizabeth 
Moore  had  four  children.  (1)  Thomas  Mutter,  father  of  Dr.  Thomas 
Mutter,  of  Philadelphia,  (2)  John  Mutter,  father  of  Mrs.  Fannie 
Macon,  of  Richmond,  Va.,  (3)  Margaret  Mutter,  wife  of  John  Bon- 
ner Blount  and  (4)  Elizabeth  Mutter,  wife  of  Thomas  B.  Littlejohn. 

Thomas  Mutter  died  ,  and  his  wife,  Elizabeth  Moore,  married, 

2nd,  Greorge  Alston,  also  a  Scotchman,  and  she  was  known  among 
her  descendants  as  *' Grandma  Alston."  She  died  at  an  advanced 
age  about  1840  at  her  home  in  Granville  Co.,  where  she  is  buried. 
Her  granddaughter,  Margaret  Littlejohn,  inherited  a  handsome 
Miniature  of  her  (which  is  now  owned  by  a  daughter  of  Maj.  Roger  P. 
Atkinson,  of  Greensboro,  N.  C),  and  a  valuable  breastpin  worn  by  her 
(which  is  now  in  the  possession  of  Mrs.  Theodore  B.  Kingsbury). 

Thomas  Blount  Littlfjohn  was  in  business  with  his  father  at 
Ekienton  before  he  moved  to  Granville  Co.  He  afterwards  lived  at 
Oxford,  N.  C,  where  he  merchandised  and  farmed  for  many  years^ 
and  in  his  old  age  was  "  Clerk  and  Master  in  Equity." 

The  land  whereon  Oxford,  Granville  Co ,  now  stands,  was  form- 
erly the  property  of  Mr.  Mitchell  and  others,  and  was  pur- 
chased of  them  by  Pannele  some  years  before  the  Court  House  was 
located  there.     In  1806  Thomas  B.  Littlejohn,  Esq.,  purchased  of 

270  North  Carolina  Historical 

Pannele,  for  the  sum  of  $1,600,  the  tract  of  land,  but  refused  to  al- 
low a  town  to  be  laid  out  on  it  or  to  sell  any  of  the  property.  Much 
dissatisfaction  grew  up  in  the  county  at  this  monopoly ;  people  had 
DO  shelter  or  other  accommodation  while  attending  court,  and  peti- 
tions were  circulated  in  the  county  to  remove  the  Court  House  from 
Oxford.  To  prevent  this,  Mr.  Littlejohn  consented  to  sell  60  acres 
for  a  town.  Accordingly,  in  1811,  an  Act  was  passed  by  the  General 
Assembly  of  North  Carolina  appointing  Col.  Robert  Burton,  Benj. 
Hiijiard,Col.  Charles  Eaton,  Dr.  John  Hare,  and  Robert  Jeter  Com- 
missioners to  purchase  60  acres  of  land  from  Mr.  Littlejohn  and  sell 
it  off  in  lots.  This  was  accordingly  done,  but  no  corporate  govern- 
ment was  established  until  1816.  In  that  year  an  Act  to  incorporate 
the  town  of  Oxford,  in  Granville  Co.,  was  passed,  and  William  M. 
Snead,  Nathaniel  M.  Taylor,  Dr.  William  V.  Taylor,  Leslie  Gilliam, 
and  Thomas  Blount  Littlejohn  were  appointed  Commissioners.  They 
were  our  first  "City  Fathers,"  and  were  empowered  to  fill  any  va- 
cancy that  might,  from  any  cause,  occur  in  their  body.  The  corpora- 
tion seems  to  have  become  dormant,  for  in  1826  an  Act  was  passed 
relieving  the  Corporation,  and  naming  Thos.  Blount  Littlejohn, 
Thomas  Booth,  Dr.  William  V.  Taylor,  David  Mitchell,  and  Rhodes 
N.  Herndon  Commissioners,  and  providing  for  the  election  of  Com- 
missioners on  the  first  Monday  in  May  of  each  year.  Again  the 
Corporation  died  out,  but  was  revived  in  1830,  and  has  existed  un- 
interruptedly ever  since.  In  1832  and  1844  Acts  were  passed  amend- 
ing the  "  Acts  of  incorporation." 

Thomas  Blount  Littlejohn  remained  in  Oxford  until  he  was 
nearly  eighty  years  old,  when  he  went  to  live  with  his  youngest 
daughter,  Mrs.  Geo.  Field,  at  her  home  "Glen wood,"  in  Warren  Co., 
N.  C,  where  he  died  Jan  29, 1864,  in  his  81st  year,  and  was  buried  at 
Oxford,  N.  C,  in  the  family  graveyard  by  the  side  of  his  wife,  Eliza- 
beth Mutter,  who  died  Feby.  19, 1842,  in  her  44th  year. 

For  forty  years  he  was  an  earnest  and  devoted  member  of  the 
Presbyterian  Church.  Whilst  those  who  knew  him  in  life's  summer 
prime  could  tell  many  things  illustrative  of  his  humanity  and  firm- 
ness, and  punctiliousness,  and  Christian  integrity,  and  inflexible  hon- 
esty, yet  the  present  writer  would  simply  say  that  a  better  man  he 
never  knew,  one  whose  strict  observance  of  the  nicest  proprieties  of 
society  was  more  invariably  scrupulous  and  characteristic  of  the 
gentleman,  or  in  whose  daily  life  were  more  clearly  exemplified  the 
shining  attributes  and  rich  virtues  which  cluster  so  thickly  around 
the  character  of  the  Christian.  As  might  have  been  anticipated 
from  so  pure  a  life,  his  end  was  glorious  and  peaceful — serene  and 
resigned  and  quiet  as  the  setting  of  an  unclouded  sun.  Mr.  Little- 
john appeared  to  them  who  only  knew  him  in  the  last  days  of  his 
life,  when  the  machinery  had  been  well  worn  by  the  service  of  eighty 
years,  as  a  man  of  strong  and  marked  character,  a  character  so  vig- 
orously drawn  and  developed  that  no  portrayal  could  possibly  pre- 
sent him  correctly  or  accurately  unless  the  lineaments  were  drawn

by  the  cordial  and  genial  hand  of  an  ADcient  friend  who  knew  him 
when  his  form  was  erect,  athletic,  and  his  eye  beamed  with  the  un- 
dimmed  lustre  of  a  healthful  and  active  manhood.  He  who  now 
writes  only  speaks  of  him  as  he  appeared  in  his  declining  years. 
Some  two  years  and  a  half  before  his  death  he  left  Oxford,  his  place 
of  residence  for  sixty  years,  to  spend  the  evening  of  his  life  in  War- 
ren Co.,  where  the  fondness  of  a  daughter  could  minister  to  his  com- 
fort. So  gentle  and  serene  was  his  death,  it  seemed  like  the  sinking 
of  a  summer  breeze  on  the  sweet  music  of  a  falling  quiet  stream. 
Thomas  Blount  Littlejohn  and  Elizabeth  Mutter  had  12  children.

The  above  item  is  copied  literally  from  the  original  found  in  the 
office  of  the  Clerk  of  the  Superior  Court  of  Pasquotank  County. 
The  date  is  erased,  but  by  the  aid  of  a  glass  it  was  found  to  be  Sept. 
5th,  1729. 

^  The  house  of  Wm.  Burgess  was  "  on  the  North  side  of  Pascotanc, 
at  the  head  of  Ramond's  Creek."  This  place  corresponds  to  Shiloh 
in  Camden  County,  Camden  County  having  been  formed  out  of  ter- 
ritory formerly  embraced  in  Pasquotank  Precinct  and  County.  If 
any  of  our  readers  could  designate  the  house  and  land  of  William 
Burgess  in  1729,  the  exact  location  could  be  ascertained  where  this 
first  Congregation  was  organized  and  where  they  worshipped.
